Manatees, also know as sea cows, are large peaceful marine mammals that spend most of their time grazing on water plants, resting and traveling and can weigh up to 3500 pounds. With no known natural enemies, habitat destruction is one of the main threats to the manatee population. Florida has several conservation efforts in place to help protect manatee including speed zones to reduce watercraft collision, public awareness programs and sanctuaries.
